About


Hi there! I'm a philosopher working as a professor of Philosophy at Federal University of Bahia (UFBA) in Salvador, Brazil.  I'm a permanent member of the Graduate Program in Philosophy and a permanent member of the Graduate Program in Teaching, Philosophy and History of Science, both at UFBA. My research is about enactivism, ecological psychology and radically embodied cognition in general (sometimes I deal with traditional epistemology as well, especially know-how, normativity and rationality). I'm also a founding member of the Enactive Cognition and Narrative Practices research group (University of Wollongong), and a founding member of the Cognition, Language, Enaction and Affectivity research group.
